All sorts!

I've got lots to share tonight.

First I am taking part in this advent swap that is being co-hosted by Jo in Tas & Fiona. My swap partner is Karol-Ann, which is funny as I've been following her blog for ages.
I nearly missed the boat on this swap as my original e-mails replying to the swap when it was first getting going disappeared into cyber space and I nearly didn't get a partner.

I'm looking forward to this swap, it's good fun plotting and scheming what I'm going to put in my parcel. Tomorrow I'm going to a Stitch & create show at Manchester Central so I intend to look for bits that I can include.

Today has been my 27th Wedding Anniversary. I can't believe we've been married that long. Yes! I know I said that when we celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary 2 years ago! But I can't! We've been out for a meal which was really nice. We've both been so busy it was nice to sit down in the same place and be able to talk.

DD's Fiance, Gromit, is being posted to Germany after 5 weeks leave with us. She is going to really miss him. This is his first posting and he is looking forward to it.

We are so proud of him.

Do you remember those piles of 4 square blocks and triangles? Well! I've started turning them into blocks.
Spot the deliberate mistake- lol

I got another lovely little parcel from The Fat Quarter shop. I bought a couple of magazines, 2 yards of Moda 'Fabulous Fall' and these 2 patterns in their sale.

I think I was drawn to 'Three Coins' because it was orginally made in Moda 'Roman Holiday' which is the fabric range I'm doing my Hexi quilt in.
Talking of which - an update of it

Not much further really! I'm going to take it on holiday with me in a week's time and hopefully I'll do a bit then. I'm not worried about this quilt, I fully expected for it to take me a long time. For this quilt it's the journey to get there rather than the end product that is important.
Right, sleep time as I have to be up for the show tomorrow. I am hopeful I will meet up with Jan. This will be the first time I will have met her so I hope we can meet up. You never know there might be a photo tomorrow!

Wow, you have so many things going on at once. Lately I've been lucky to have one project to work on.

Happy anniversary. You make a handsome couple.

Congratulations on your wedding anniversary. It's lovely to see how that fabric has come together. Enjoy your day today

Congratulations on your wedding anniversary. Neither of you look old enough to have been married 27 yrs.

It was great meeting up with you and I should have taken our photos. My camera was in the bottom of my handbag but only got used once. I always do that. I took it away last weekend and didn't take one photo!
